COLORADO SPRINGS – The United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum will adjust hours of operation beginning Tuesday, Feb. 2.

The change in hours will provide additional flexibility for guest visitation by extending hours later into the evening on Thursdays and Fridays. The Museum will be closed to general admission on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but will be open for scheduled groups.

“We believe that making this seasonal shift is ideal for the community, as it offers guests more opportunities to visit during these challenging times of COVID,” said Museum Chief Executive Officer Christopher Liedel. “As the year progresses, we will monitor health and safety recommendations and guest attendance activity with the plan to shift back to regular operating hours later this spring.”

The Museum winter hours will be:

  • Monday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for general admissions
  • Tuesday: closed for general admission; scheduled group visits only
  • Wednesday: closed for general admission; scheduled group visits only
  • Thursday: 12 p.m.-7 p.m. for general admissions
  • Friday: 12 p.m.-7 p.m. for general admissions
  • Saturday: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. for general admissions
  • Sunday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for general admissions


Scheduled group visits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays will allow the Museum to accommodate visitors seeking an added level of safety. Groups of 15 or more that are interested in scheduling a visit can contact groupsales@usopm.org.
